And why is it so many of these stories are centered around school, and teachers INSISTING on making public in class results of tests, and other things like that? I was very unpopular in school, from 4-6 grades. We had moved, and I was painfully shy, VERY self-concious and quiet. If I had ever had to announce how many valentine's I got I would have been mortified as I KNOW it was probably very few compared to everyone else. Thankfully that never happened, but really? Who thought that was a good idea?
My embarassing moments were gym class in those grades, where you had to be picked for teams. I was always last. and then all the other kids would groan about how they were stuck with me. Well, I'm sorry that wearing coke bottle glasses and having no depth perception whatsoever made me terrible at sports. And I'm sorry you were stuck with me. Not like I could help it or anything.
My other embarassing moment, also in gym class, was in 7th grade? With those stupid presidential fitness challanges. Where you had to do sit ups and pull ups and so on? My gym teacher would pair us off, then we'd do whatever, then he'd call your name and you had to yell out how many of what you did. Again, not being particularly athletic, say for sit ups, you'd hear, 35, 42, and so on, and then me with like 15 which was an effort.
